I showed you the Easter crafts I did to give to other people but I didn't show you one I made for myself.
I took a short wood candle holder and a cheap plastic egg
and turned it in to this. You might recognize this from yesterday's post.
I started by gluing strips of torn book pages on to the egg to cover it. Then I lightly dabbed on some blue paint. I glued on the trim and finished it with the butterfly.
The candle holder was painted with chalk paint, sanded a bit to distress a bit and then finished it off with an antique wax.
I bought the chalk paints and wax sealer a while back and have been wanting to try them just didn't know what to use them on. I have to say that I really like the way it looked and now I want to find something else to use them on.
Here's a side by side before and after
